    New Exhaust advice needed

    Right...My exhaust has been making some strange noises for a while now. at first i thought it was just the centre section. so i took to to a local Kwik Fit and got them to have a look.

    They Said:
    Yep your going to need to replace everything after the CAT. they told me about £140 for this but this would mean my backbox cannot go on as they told me that you cannot actually put a back box on the car "properly" (is this true??)
    My back box has been cut and welded to fit (some flexible Connection at the back has been cut out to fit the box) and this is having an effect on the Cat and is pulling on it when you accelerate. Eventually it will break.

    I Have decided to get a Full sports System for the car. I was wondering what options i have and how much costs are going to be?

    If anyone has any Websites or phone numbers for places then that would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Best just to get a custom one built instead, MMV in Stirling is one place to go to or Freeflow in Shotts or C & C in Glasgow.

    i paid £430 for sports cat (£180 for this), stainless straight through centre section and backbox, all custom by meercat exhausts in kilbirnie in ayrshire. exact same stuff as c&c quality is excellent! so for system without a sports cat i presume it would be about £250. takes a whole day roughly and willy is a great guy! builds lots of rally car exhausts so you know he must be good! can also do other custom work like swirl pots, spark plug covers etc

    phone number is 01505 685235 ask for willy
